Palliser Dental Excels in New Technology Unlike Anything Around
The Evidence Shows that DEXIS is the BEST Digital X-ray System Available
Recently Paul A. Palliser, DDS PC has begun using a new system, the digital DEXIS CariVu Detection device which will further enhance all of our existing services.
Quite simply, it helps us diagnose caries at an early stage.
DEXIS CariVu™ is a compact, portable caries detection device that uses patented transillumination technology to support the identification of occlusal, interproximal and recurrent carious lesions and cracks.
By hugging the tooth and bathing it in safe, near-infrared light, CariVu’s transillumination technology makes the enamel appear transparent while porous lesions trap and absorb the light. This unique caries detector allows us to see through the tooth exposing its structure and the actual structure of any carious lesions with very high accuracy.
Similar in appearance, DEXIS CariVu images read like familiar X-ray images — lesions will appear as dark areas. This provides an edge over fluorescent imaging technologies in that there is no need to clean the tooth of bacteria, calibrate the device or become versed in the meaning of multiple color codes or numeric indicators.
It’s a new fresh user experience, with quick capture and on=screen acquisition guidance with video capture, we can very easily and quickly capture the most accurate condition of your teeth, which allows up to identify challenges early on.
Watch our video below to learn about the CariVu. Dr. Paul will let you know if it’s an option for you.
